Obtaining a degree of higher learning is not a guarantee that a higher-paying job will be right around the corner.
College-age adults are finding that a technical degree at a lesser known school is worth more in the immediate future than a 4-year bachelor’s degree.
College Measures (CM) released a report finding that degrees in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math are more promising as far as employment after graduation than English majors.
This study was a joint venture between CM, the American Institutes for Research (AIR) and the Matrix Knowledge Group (MKG).
Funding for the report was provided by the Lumia Foundation (LF).
This group is comprised of such special interest groups such as:
• Former president of Sallie Mae
• Representatives of community colleges
• Representative of online schools
Mark Schneider, the author of the report, stated that “the findings challenge some conventional wisdom.”
This report was conducted for the sake of convincing students, parents, and lawmakers (including policymakers) that there is little value in higher learning and investments in technical schools will boost enrollment.
Schneider stated: “Until the data about potential earnings among graduates across the nation is unearthed and put to full use, many students will make poor decisions about schools and programs — decisions that will leave them saddled with debt and clamoring for a government bailout.”
The CM report claims:
• Short term degrees yield higher salaries
• Higher tuition does not guarantee higher wages
• Degrees in the scientific field prove more financially rewarding
Since “technical-oriented associate’s degree programs are helping many students successfully enter the labor market by equipping them with skills that are in demand” the encouragement toward a 4-year university seems inappropriate.
Mainstream media adds to the new social meme that technical degrees are better by expounding that a “Ph.D. is often a waste of time” and often causing “dissatisfaction” for being a pathway to “slave labor”.
Current acceptable skills obtained by lower-level education are:
• Registered nurse
• Police officer
• Dental hygienist
• Diagnostic medical sonographer
Each degree necessitates a fair amount of education; however, they are reflective of the lack of actual labor that goes into more respectable positions.
While their pay rate is rising, these are grunt laborers of their respective trades and are not idealized for their social status.
Recently, President Obama spoke to students at State University of New York at Buffalo; a school where most of the student body is made up of children from middle-class families.
The purpose of this speech was to entice residents of lower-profile cities to a new scheme for affordable college.
As part of this scheme, there will be a new rating system (NRS) implemented to evaluate schools based on the needs of the students; while bringing the curriculum to those standards as well.
This would connect financial assistance to the value of the student. Those educational institutions that meet governmental standards would be rewarded with more financial aid.
Obama decreed that the 5 pillars of economic growth are:
• Quality jobs
• Retirement programs
Peter Thiel founded the Thiel Fellowship (TF) with the promise of “a no-strings-attached grant of $100,000 to a skip college and focus on their work, their research, and their self-education.”
Thiel Fellows “are given to immerse themselves in their work comes the opportunity to collaborate with each other.
Fellows are encouraged to learn from each other, and to use the group’s varied experiences, interests, and strengths to breathe life into existing ideas and to generate new ones.”
One of the most interesting positions that Thiel has held is having a seat on the Steering Committee of the Bilderberg Group.
The Steering Committee governs the Bilderberg Group with an elected chairman. They also decides who is extended an invitation to attend Bilderberg Group meetings – based on “their experience, their knowledge, their standing and their contribution to the selected agenda.”
I Can't Help Showing This Off:
If you haven't heard of Claude Davis yet do yourself a huge favor and watch this video.
One of the smartest guys I ever had the pleasure of meeting, Claude set-up a unique prepping system that changed his life forever.
I already tried it myself and let me tell... you I was completely blown away... His surprising tactics could make your life easier and give you the peace of mind you deserve.
Don't just take my word for it... watch his short video and decide for yourself.
Most People Don't Have The Guts To Try This:
An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.
Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.
We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.
Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions. A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:
